What's the Big Secret? Talking about Sex with Girls and BoysAuthor: Laurie Krasny Brown (on JOMB)
Illustrator: Marc Brown (on JOMB)
Published: 2000 Little, Brown and Company (on JOMB)
ISBN: 0316101834

Hey guys,
It’s Teresa from the Wild Oat. I looked up your site and have been browsing… entertaining and well done!! I love childrens’ books even though I have no children of my own. Your book by book broadcasts are fantastic. You’ve got some choice picks here, and I find your comments very interesting.
Thanks and see you next week!

We started reading it to our children when they were 2. They are now 6 and 8 and we still read it with them, and they read it to themselves.
